    I have 55 apps in my iPod and i think that my iPod its still fast,like new. The only thing is that you install an app and when rebooting it takes a little more of time but its nothing.

    Just ask yourself: Do I really need 200 apps installed? Probably not.

    64 applications here on 4 successive panels, on 1.1.2, without any trouble.
    I believe as long as you have space to install them (in this respect, moving the Application folder is mandatory), there is no special issue with having many application, since 99.99% of them use CPU only when you have them running (on the screen).

    The only exception I see is the very unusual application that continue running in background, like the chat-related (Apollo) or VoIP-related (SIP-VoIP from touchMods hen you intentionally leave it running in the background to be reachable).
    But even with two such apps in background there is no special slowdown on my iPod touch.

    There should only be a performance decrease if you have applications running in the background.
